some of the tax changes that he would specify with the ways he would trim the deficit. his campaign -- the president's campaign already signaled that. here is how his deputy campaign manager steffi cutter put it in a new video they put out today, brooke. >> mitt romney hasn't given us any specific details of his economic plans. so we can use tonight's debate to give us the details for first time ever, or we can spend 90 minutes doing what we know he's good at, attacking the president, distorting his own record, and avoiding any and all details of his plans for the country. >> now, obviously that's expectation setting and priming the media to already start looking for any specifics, weaknesses by romney in getting into the details. but it does mean that we should start looking for the president to push the governor on those kinds of issues. i do think the president has separate challenges, but this is what we should see the president get aggressive on tonight, brooke. >> okay. also we should point out, jessica, it is interesting timing, this date here, it coincides with a certain sig

mitt romney leads on dealing with the deficit, the economy, while the president leads on a host of issues while looking out for the middle class. do you think joe biden's remarks about the middle class being buried will make the president's job harder tonight? >> the middle class has really suffered as a result of this economic downturn and frankly, president obama knows that. and he has been working to enact policies that will help the middle class. mitt romney's recent remarks about the 47%, he doesn't represent them. they're not going to vote for him. those are the people who have been hurt by this economy and they're the people frankly that president obama and the democrats in congress have been trying to work to help as we begin to come out of this recession. certainly tax cuts for the top 1% of americans are not going to help middle class voters. >> one thing i want to get your take on, looking specifically at your own state, colorado, our latest poll showing president obama with a five-point lead over mitt romney. 5 50-45%. the political landscape there changed since geor
